Recorded at Foro Sol, Mexico City, Mexico, on June 4, 6 and 7, 2009, "Orgullo, Pasión, y Gloria: Tres Noches en la Ciudad de México" presents Metallica at the peak of its World Magnetic Tour.
Little about Metallica’s formative days hinted that the group was already charting its every move and documenting each step for future purposes. The youthful members looked as menacing and resistant as they sounded. Their acne-splotched faces, worn denim jackets, long hair and bullet belts conveyed the same darkness and danger embodied by the high-school druggies-stoners and dropouts parents warned their own kids to avoid. The quartet’s music proved equally intimidating.
